Instant classic: Sam Greco – Mirko “Cro Cop” 1999 K-1 WGP (VIDEO)

The 1999 K-1 Grand Prix event was the 7th annual tournament that included the best 8 heavyweight kickboxers.

Sam Greco, Ernesto Hoost, Mirko Cro Cop, Musashi, Peter Aerts, Andy Hug, Ray Sefo, and Jerome Le Banner all managed to qualify for the quarter-finals.

Nearly 60 000 fans were packed inside the “Tokyo Dome” in Japan’s capital city, as the first semifinal was reserved for Australia’s Sam Greco and Croatia’s Mirko Filipovic.

This is the first and the last time those two are squaring up inside the pro ring and many believe that this clash is the “real final of the World Grand Prix” that year.
